    Intex 24'x52" metal frame

    I wonder if anyone has this pool. We bought it last year and struggled with it. This year it looks a lot more level which is good. Is it normal for the legs to splay out at the bottom slightly? The manual doesn't give very much information about setting the legs up.
    If anyone could possibly post pictures of their's (particularly how the legs stand) when full up that would be great, so I can compare ours now it is full of water!.
    I think I am being too cautious but it seems such a massive amount of water for the frame to hold.
    Many Thanks.

    Perhaps better is for you to post some pictures of yours and the AG experts here will take a look at it and see if there is an issue

    Not 100% sure on the 24' but on the 18' yes the legs splay out a little. Maybe 1/2 t0 1 1/2 inches. I am on my 4th year with the metel frames (both the standard and the ultra) and both styles the legs splayed out.

    I'm not very technical minded! But if somebody could run me through how to post a photo I would be pleased to ask for you to look at it.
    Many Thanks.

    Hope this works! When you look at it, it looks fine, but holding a level to the legs you can see a slight angle to it. Thanks again.

    Hi flowers02

    I see nothing wrong with the legs on your pool. The legs will kick out just a little toward the outside at the bottom of the legs. This is normal. The rope at the bottom of the legs will keep the legs from kicking out completely from the pool. The frame is there to hold the pool upright and the liner is used to hold the water.
